I was railing against this last year and there was a user TelephoneToughGuy who did a lot to try and control it

SUGGESTION: if you find any of these movies and find the content objectionable - report and flag it using the link on the item's page and it is usually taken down quite quickly. Raising red flags works

I asked for this stuff to be put in foreign language section, at the very least, but since IA is so 'open' there is no easy way to stop it, and it is time and labor intensive to screen everything prior to posting. How can one ensure this stuff doesn't get posted? TRacking e-mails, confirming memberships?

I've also had quite a few posts/messages about the free-speech versus historical value issue and aspects of the debate. No easy answers here... I want this stuff out, but I hate censorship too... I can't decide anymore. When free speech becomes incitement to violence, yes it is dangerous and should not be ignored, Unfortunately there are no easy fixes - education, openness and tolerance, as usual, are the long term answers to our problems but are all in short supply.

You should make up your mind and do it soon. These sort of films are not 'historical' records - they are current threats of violence. They pollute the Archive.
